Embassy of Canada :

French Embassy :
The security situation throughout the metropolitan area of Port-au-Prince, which had deteriorated sharply last weekend, is gradually returning to normal. However, one must remain vigilant in his movements, especially in the province where roadblocks can still exist with opportunistic elements practicing the racket of vehicles. It is therefore preferable to suspend, unless imperative, any travel project in Haiti and for people on the spot to exercise the utmost caution. In case of emergency, the French Embassy in Haiti can be reached on 31 90 41 11 (+509 31 90 41 11 from France).

The MINUJUSTH encourages all actors to engage in constructive dialogue to find a peaceful solution to the situation. The police component of the Mission has contributed to the elimination of roadblocks to ensure access to key roads and will continue to coordinate closely with the relevant authorities if the situation requires it."
